Event description
Hal Wershow discusses climate change in Central Oregon and what we can do in our community to diminish the worst impacts.

About this event

Between record heat waves, horrific smoke and debilitating drought, we are all experiencing the anticipated effects of climate change first-hand. And while the situation is clearly dire, there is still opportunity to rewrite our climate future. COCC Geology professor Hal Wershow will examine how our climate in Central Oregon has already changed and then share projections for what we can expect for the rest of the 21st century. After reviewing the science, he will transition into climate resilience; in other words, what can we do in our community to diminish the worst impacts and adapt to the inevitable changes.

Limited Capacity. Livestream available. COVID-19 safety protocols will be followed.

We strongly encourage that those who choose to attend this event in person be fully vaccinated against COVID-19. If you are unvaccinated, we kindly ask that you choose the livestream version of this program to help us ensure the health and safety of our community.

Program supported by Maybelle Clark Macdonald Fund and the Associated Students of COCC.

About Hal Wershow

Hal Wershow began his geology career with research projects in Peru and Hawaii, before settling at Los Alamos National Laboratory, where he monitored groundwater for high explosives and radioactivity. After realizing that he made a more meaningful impact by sharing his stoke for all things Earth, he decided to teach. Along the way, he studied glaciers and climate change at Western Washington University, and had the good fortune to find himself surrounded by teaching mentors. Since beginning at COCC in the Fall term of 2018, Hal has become enamored with our fabulous local volcanoes and the glaciers they host.

PLEASE NOTE: COVID-19 safety protocols will be followed at this program. With the pandemic changing rapidly, this program is subject to change. Refunds will be issued if necessary.
